Care Ministries



Care is an important for our congregation and is a part of all of our ministries at First Presbyterian Asheville. From lending a listening ear over coffee after worship, to praying in a group, or a visit by one of our pastors, deacons, or elders, care is a key way to share the love of God with others.

Please let the church office know about illnesses, hospitalizations, and other life challenges.


Our deacons have several key ministries to support the care of our congregation.

You do not need to be a deacon to be on one of these teams. Please reach out if you would like more information on being on one of these teams.

TheVisitation Team delivers flowers from our services and visits with people.

Our Prayer Team meets twice a month to pray for those on our prayer list, as well as our birthdays!

The New Member Team helps our new members find their place of connection in our congregation.

The Bereavement Team works with staff and families to support funerals and memorial services.
